This report connects Dell Med’s progress to objectives outlined in Central Health’s Strategic Work Plan for FY2019 and FY2020, provides specific examples of how Dell Med is improving care locally and investing in a better system for the future, and outlines some future plans. It also includes an overview of the school’s FY2017 expenses, as well planned FY2019 expenses to help improve understanding of how taxpayer funds are used to support Central Health’s mission.


Dell Med’s 2017 reporting included two snapshots. The first is a broad-based Community Impact Update that highlights how, during its start-up phase, the school focused on recruiting leaders and launching operations. The second, a Community Benefit Report issued with Central Health, provides an opportunity to learn more about the relationship between Dell Med and Central Health, as well as how the school is putting community funding to work to directly benefit the people of Travis County.
